Local Speaking Event: Women in Consulting this Thursday the 21st

Yikes, I keep meaning to post that I'm speaking on a panel about blogging this Thursday for Women in Consulting.

The panel is entitled: "Blog Your Business to Another Level: Building Business Through a Dynamic, Interactive Web Presence"

The description is:

Are any of the following beliefs preventing you from starting a blog or short-circuiting the success of your existing blog:
  • You don’t understand the technology

  • You’re worried about the time commitment

  • You’re afraid of getting sued

  • You don’t think you can compete with the 112 million bloggers who got there first

  • These are the most common fears people have about blogging, but they’re based on misconceptions. The truth is a lot less intimidating. Let our panel of experts at the WIC meeting on August 21st show you how to build your business and raise your profile by blogging—without neglecting your clients or your family.

    The schedule is (and it even includes dinner!):
    Thursday, August 21, 2008
    6:00pm-6:30pm Networking
    6:30pm-8:30pm Presentation & Dinner, Q&A

    And my fellow panelists are:

  • Moderator and "author-izer" Sallie Goetsch (rhymes with "sketch") has been publishing online since 1994, when she cofounded a scholarly electronic journal. She started writing a weekly business e-zine in 2003, and began publishing it as a blog in 2005. Sallie is a social media evangelist and a self-confessed "ghost blogger."

  • Karen Greenwood Henke, managing director of Nimble Press, founded her company in 1999 to provide strategic communications and website consulting to corporate and nonprofit clients. She specializes in helping companies bring the latest technology to the K-12 education market by creating awareness campaigns through the Web.

  • Colette Vogele practices intellectual property law, specializing in technology and new media. She heads Vogele & Associates, where she represents bloggers, podcasters, and Web 2.0 interactive companies in matters of contract and licensing, copyright, fair use, privacy, reputation and security, trademark/brand management, and related topics.
